8 billion dollars in corporate welfare to big oil every year.
How much of that do they spend on those advertisements I see constantly?
Judging from frequency of their commercials, I’d say there’s no industry doing better right now than big oil.
Followed by insurance or pharmaceuticals.
go figure, another one who makes some sense.
â€œDoes anyone not believe whatâ€™s happened here the last couple weeks in the market was not a complete, direct result of the lack of confidence that came out of that folly, that embarrassment?â€
(referring to the debt ceiling crisis ginned up by republicans trying to force the middle class to pay for the republican wars and tax cuts for the wealthy.
While republicans continue to their war on reality, insisting that the corporate tax rate is too onerous despite all evidence to the contrary, including the latest report from ThinkProgress
Of last yearâ€™s 100 highest-paid corporate chief executives in the United States, 25 took home more in CEO pay than their company paid in 2010 federal income taxes.
If republicans wanted to help small business – that’s different.
I’d support that.
But republicans support big business when big business has everything.
Conservatives in general are braindead if they vote republican.,
you are anti-american because you’re betting against america
you are a moron, because gold has more than tripled in price over 3 years for no reason.
and if you buy from goldline, you might as well be supporting that crackpot glen beck.
goldline, by the way – tends to sell coins at twice their value.
so if you do need to buy gold, don’t buy from them.
No doubt this is another newsmax site.
Check out their poll questions.
1. More than three years after the $700 billion dollar stimulus, unemployment and foreclosures are still at record highs. Is President Barack Obama most to blame for the lack of economic recovery?
The highlighted portion is false.
3. President Obama’s proposed 2011 budget spends $3.73 trillion on infrastructure, high speed rail projects and other stimulus programs. Do you feel this will stimulate the economy and get American’s back to work?
The highlighted portion is LAUGHABLY false.
The ENTIRE BUDGET is 3.7 trillion.
After completing their entirely fake “survey”, you are immediately forwarded to a website with the famous scam layout (single very long page).
Mr. Perry, the governor of Texas, recently made headlines by dismissing evolution as â€œjust a theory,â€ one that has â€œgot some gaps in itâ€ â€” an observation that will come as news to the vast majority of biologists.
Mr. Perry and those who think like him know what they want to believe, and their response to anyone who contradicts them is to start a witch hunt.
odds are that one of these years the worldâ€™s greatest nation will find itself ruled by a party that is aggressively anti-science, indeed anti-knowledge
Also check out the book, “the republican war on science” – if you need more examples.
Like all the rest, I’m sure she wanted to avoid a “youtube” moment.
Freshman Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-WA) has decided against holding public town halls during the August recess,
Our freedom-loving conservatives continue the march toward fascism.
conservative hillbilly fact #1
Al gore said he created the internet. Hur! Al Gore’s so dumb!
reality ignored by conservative hillbillies:
“Actually, the vice president never claimed to have done so — but he did help the Net along. Some people would rather forget that.”
conservative hillbilly fact #2
Pelosi said We have to pass health reform before we know what’s in it! She didn’t even read the bill, Har!
reality ignored by conservative retards:
This out of context quote was Pelosi deriding the huge amount of stupidity and lies surrounding the health care debate – such as the 2010 lie of the year, “death panels”.
Fact: when president Obama took office we were losing more than 700,000 jobs per month.
Fact: NOTHING, barring some impossible miracle could have turned that around immediately, which means that ANY president would have had the same unemployment record – except republicans would have let the AUTO INDUSTRY DIE – there goes MILLIONS of jobs. And republicans would not have passed the stimulus – another 3 million jobs. With a republican president instead of President Obama, we’d have 14% unemployment. Its simple math.
FACT: EVERY SINGLE TIME republicans whine about jobs, they are actually whining about the recession that started december 2007 – more than a year before president Obama took office.
FACT: republicans prevented every other economic measure offered by the democratic house of representatives under Nancy Pelosi after the stimulus was passed.
FACT: republicans were elected by hillbillies and medicated old folks that think fox is news.
FACT: NOTHING that republicans have proposed in a year since they were elected would positively affect our jobs situation.
In short, if your dumb conservative ass is whining about the president and the economy, you’re fucking stupid.
